Russian military finds traces of chemical agents in Aleppo

Russian military personnel have found traces of chemical agents and toxic gas cylinders during a search operation in the southwest of the flashpoint Syrian city of Aleppo.

According to the Russian military, the samples found at a suspected chemical weapons workshop will be sent to a scientific laboratory in Moscow for further investigation. The findings came just days after the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that militants launched fresh chemical attacks against Syrian army positions in eastern Aleppo.

The Syria military earlier reported that the attack left scores of civilians and troops injured. Foreign-backed militants have reportedly launched at least three chemical attacks in Aleppo over the past two weeks.
